Preciptation causing some rivers to flood across Ohio, Indiana, and Pennsylvania

Snoflo | 2018-04-05



Rivers levels on the rise across Ohio, Indiana, and Pennsylvania as precipitation runoff continues from the latest storm systems. Rivers in Ohio like the Conneaut Creek At Conneaut Oh and Tymochtee Creek At Crawford Oh are at flood levels, and surpassing averages with the Conneaut Creek At Conneaut Oh rising by over 2039.0cfs over the past 24 hours alone. Floods can often be the most expensive natural disasters to an area with damage to crops, infrastructure, and private property.


Indiana has not been spared, as precipitation runoff has caused some rivers to rise by 783.04%. The Big Blue River At Shelbyville was flowing at 9890cfs just past midnight today, blowing past its average flow rate of 548.205442177cfs. The Wabash River At Linn Grove has also been flowing at highs, as the river depth inched past 11.63ft and flows reached 4450cfs.



We've also seen Pennsylvania rivers exceptionally high for this time of year with over 21 river gauges across the state recording flows at abnormal highs. Rivers like the Wb Susquehanna River Near Curwensville are above 6.67ft (3690cfs), having risen by over 1910.0cfs over the past 24 hours. Such high flow levels are uncommon for the rivers, creating the potential for damage to the surrounding area.
